The J.D. Harn Industrial Park in Pembroke is gaining a new tenant, and the city will be gaining about 50 new jobs thanks to the joint venture of two companies from both near and far.
Savannah Global Solutions and Brazil-based CZM announced the formation of a new manufacturing endeavor and plans for improvements to the former Oldcastle Precast plant in Pembroke for the location of a manufacturing and assembly facility.
The announcement was made Monday during a groundbreaking ceremony at the site.
According to a press release from the Development Authority of Bryan County, the new facility will employ about 50 people for production and assembly to serve domestic and foreign markets.
The new facility, once at full capacity, will become one of Pembroke’s largest employers.
“The city of Pembroke is excited to welcome Savannah Global and CZM to our community,” said Pembroke Mayor Mary Warnell. “Our city has worked very hard over the past few years to attract new jobs and investments into our community. This announcement today is a product of those efforts and we look forward to helping both Savannah Global and CZM grow and prosper in Pembroke.”
The new facility will be Bryan County’s third international flag facility, joining Oracal USA of Germany, and Argos USA of Colombia with production facilities in Bryan County.
“We are excited that Savannah Global Solutions and CZM have chosen to locate their new facility in Bryan County,” Steve Croy, chairman of the Development Authority, said. “This announcement shows that we are the community of choice for this market due to our outstanding business climate. This is a great day for our community and shows long-standing partnership between the Development Authority of Bryan County and the city of Pembroke.”
